Our Solution

It is the only software licensed to apply AGS Beers Criteria and StoppStart™ Criteria.

Developed to review medication appropriateness for older patients with multiple morbidities.

It is used by clinicians to support comprehensive medication reviews older patients, in particular, poly-pharmacy patients with multiple conditions.

Using our technology clinicians have reported:

  • A reduction in the number of medications taken by patients which were found to inappropriate
  • A significant number of hospital admissions prevented in their highest risk, high cost patient cohort
  • Better patient adherence to drug regimens due to better understanding of medications and reduction in unnecessary medications

Supporting best practice prescribing and improving patient care

Patient-centred

Automatically reviews each patient’s fully electronic medical record for medication appropriateness.

Evidence-based Prescribing

CSIS Health is the only company licenced to electronically apply the international best practice criteria sets; Beers Criteria and StoppStart™ Criteria. Application of both criteria sets together are recommended to support comprehensive medication reviews in older patients.

Patient Safety

Improving Medication Appropriateness

And tackling polypharmacy associated with multi-morbidity and multiple conditions

Our software is designed to review current medication regimes for patients with multiple conditions, taking multiple medications.

  • Identifies over-prescribing, mis-prescribing (STOPP Criteria, Beers Criteria)
  • Under-prescribing (START Criteria)
  • Optimizes drug therapy and reduces drug costs and wastage

Older patients tend to be at higher risk for medication-associated complications.
